Not in its original spot. Farmer has moved it, I presume to stop us lot trespassing on his land, but now making it easier to get to. It is now right beside the road opposite the house. There was a horse shoe placed on top when we arrived. Visited with CherryBubb.

Pulled up in farmyard and did intend to quickly take photo's and go. The farmer was in one of the barns and he came over to have chat. Very friendly and we put the world to right in no time. Trig is in very good condition.

Parking in the private farmyard can be avoided by parking by the start of the public footpath.

Pillar has been moved. It's now very visible from the road and there is a convenient pull-in next to it. Although the parking area is most likely private property, us trig baggers will only be stopping for a few minutes once a year or so, so I don't suppose it will bother the owners - who are very aware of visitors if they live in the house across the road as the dog went mental when we were there! Pillar is in good condition and looks very much at home in its new location approx 80m from where it should be.

Thought I would check on the state of this and was pleased to see that it had been re-erected by the side of the road and a very neat job they have done as well. Sorry I didnt take a GPS reading but you cant miss it as it is located directly opposite the farm.

Visited pillar on date of log, however noticed that it has appeared as a new entry 06/2014. As stated in original logs the pillar had been moved by the farmer. Or perhaps the current one is not the original

One of only two that I have not visited within 50 mile radius of homeso was pleased to get this one! Tried to get permission but no one(apart from dogs) at home. Approached from East across fields but didnt fancy entering garden(braving said dogs!) so took picture from fenceline.

Younger farmer getting very fed up was chatted to when I walked down the side of the field but an ID flash calmed him down. Talked him though how each part was used etc and by the time I left he was alot calmer. Commented on three recent visitor first one piling out of a bus, second a nice chap from Hereford the third interupting his sunday lunch. Any claimants:-) Was talking about demolishing it but I talked him into leaving it or moving it onto land by the roadside. Strongly suggest this one is left unvisited for a while

Slightly damaged 13th Jul 2004  11:45  by Lathama

Three consecutive numbers this morning! This one is in a redundant corner of a farmyard, surrounded by rusting machinery, with a huge load of metal wire wrapped round it and completely overgrown with nettles. However, I had a most interesting conversation with the [aging] farmer, who remembered the OS coming and erecting it! Apparantly they used it quite a lot and they repainted it in the late 1960's. It has its original plug but a few bits have been knocked off the top corners [no doubt caused by wrapping wire round it!]. It's still quite white. The eastern face hole is open, the others plugged. You can't see anything from here other than farm buildings but the old farmer was really pleasant!

Wasn't really expecting it to be in the farmyard, so seeing the field was empty, decided that it might not be there. I will return!
